AI, challenges, and opportunities in cybersecurity

As the adoption of generative AI progresses, on the one hand it amplifies the risks to enterprises and infrastructure as it lowers some barriers to entry for cybercriminals and allows them to customize attacks, but on the other hand it also increases threat detection and response capabilities and cloud security.

Telefónica Tech has partnerships with the world’s top cybersecurity and AI leaders. Through these collaborations it is building a complete portfolio of security automation use cases that, coupled with the expertise of professionals in its multiple security operation centers (SOC), offers advanced threat detection and response capabilities in the European, Latin American and U.S. markets.

Additionally, Telefónica Tech provides expert guidance and intelligence in real time and on a 24/7 basis to help companies effectively identify and mitigate security risks thanks to the cyber intelligence services offered from its Digital Operations Centers (DOC), located in Madrid and Colombia, and in coordination with the more than 2,500 cybersecurity operations professionals, who handle 350,000 security event tickets and around 500,000 alerts per year, of which 13,000 are critical.
